Sure Jill's barely 19 months old but if you asked me (before yesterday) to guess whether she'd be a girly girl or a tomboy, I would have chosen the latter. Hands down. This kid likes worms and loves nothing more than stomping her feet in a deep puddle. I was thrown for a loop yesterday at pick-up when I saw my little girl with a ponytail on top of her head! Total Bam Bam style with a yellow padded elastic. I may have shrieked and been that Mom. I couldn't help it. Add a hair accessory and you add months to their lives. She looked like such a little girl! She let Miss Michelle (the Assistant Director - there are two Miss Michelles) do her hair in the early afternoon, probably since her buddy Shannon was also sporting a ponytail.
Fast forward to this morning. I went for it. If Jill allowed Michelle to do her hair then she would allow her own Mom, wouldn't she? I pulled her bangs back and slid the purple bow clip (thank you, Becky!) through her hair without a hitch. She kept it! So this is the difference between having a little boy and having a little girl, I thought. This is going to be fun!
